    Yes it does, 6m x 25mm

    I'm not as good as I once was, but I'm as good once as I ever was

    Axminster tools sell the same product, ideal for someone starting out I would have thought.

    it probably is expensive for the quantity but it is very convenient, and lasts a fair while. It is 16, so doesn't break the bank.

    cutting or tearing decent sandpaper into strips is a pain.

    Abranet is great for pens, but I think a little over praised for more general woodturning. It's not much use for fast rotary sanding, either with power or hand held system (eg Hope), as the mesh is blocked by the pad and any overheating passes through the mesh and can damage the Velcro.
    Abranet is also quite stiff and soemtimes doesn't follow contours as well as more flexible products.
    I find Rhynogrip Plus (white) as long lasting as Abranet, more flexible and significantly cheaper.

    YMMV

    Abranet were the innovators of this type of sanding product using ceramic as the abrasive.
    But I believe the patent has run out and clones of it are coming onto the market, notably from Mirka, who make good stuff.
    So prices will start to vary.
    As an abrasive it is a class act!!

    I’ve just moved over to Abranet from the cloth backed aluminum oxide abrasive strips you get in the Turners Sanding Packs.

    I have only had chance to try the 400 & 600 grit on a couple of pens, the other grits (180,240 & 320) only turned up late last week so haven’t tried them yet! But going by the 400 & 600 I’m already converted.

    I had some wood filler I wasn’t looking forward to sanding down a while back, Abranet did the job easily in the end.
